Purple Needle Eater at 50%


I finally got the first Purple Needle Eater off the needles.

Lots of firsts in this sock – plenty of new skills learnt.

As expected, it is a bit too large. Not so large that Mr plumbum gets his mitts on them, though. 🙂

Very snuggly – will make fine house socks. I may sew some soles onto them.

Judging by today’s weather, it may be a long time before I get to wear these socks. Now, knowing that, can I persuade myself to avoid SSS – and cast on the other one straightaway? Definitely not tonight. I am suffering from too much sun and don’t think I can cope with that horrible cast on. Tomorrow, maybe – though I have much paper crafting to be done tomorrow, a swap package has to go out on Wednesday.
